With expected increase in population, the demand for food grain is likely to rise and consumption requirements are to be met with decreasing arable land. Thus, raising farm productivity becomes important and this can be done with optimal usage of products like agrochemicals. This, in turn, is expected to support higher consumption of fungicides. The overall Indian pesticides and other agrochemicals industry is estimated to increase at a CAGR of 7.5%-8.5% by 2026-27 on account of an upward growth expected in the international market and a likely increase in domestic usage. India’s per hectare consumption of pesticides is minimal 0.6 kg which is even lower than the world average of 2.6 kg / hectare.
